Core Five generates value through providing extensive benchmarking comprising in depth data analysis and cost modelling using a plethora of inhouse data from historic and existing projects across our core sectors; Live, Work, and Play.
We differentiate ourselves in how we analyse and apply this data by using our data library of costs and key design metrics to assess each scheme against industry peers. We then use our intelligence and experience to analyse and explain why the data tells the story it does.
Technology is constantly evolving and with the push for low carbon solutions, the market for engineering services is moving at a rapid speed. We know that costing the right specification is vital.
We place emphasis on benchmarking specifications and not solely focusing on more generic cost data such as cost/sqft. This, combined with the intensive knowledge of our specialist Engineering Services team, allows us to identify what the project abnormals and key cost drivers are. These resources enable us to manage risks, select the most suitable procurement strategy, and to target areas of overdesign to reduce unnecessary costs and operational carbon footprint by offering value engineering opportunities.
Ultimately, we advise our Clients to make quick decisions and to strike a balance between good specifications vs costs.
To help easily visualise our benchmarked information we use a wide variety of software, including Power BI, to provide staff and Clients a wide range of fully interactive, real-time comparisons,
that are illustrated using simple informative graphics, readily available with a few clicks of a button.
